Joshua Wong jailed for 13.5 months over 2019 ‘illegal assembly’

Prominent Hong Kong activist is one of three who pleaded guilty over rally held by police station in June 2019.

A court in Hong Kong has sentenced pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong to prison for 13.5 months after he pleaded guilty to organising and inciting an unauthorised assembly outside a police station in the district of Wanchai during mass protests against the government in June last year.

Twenty-four-year-old Wong will be jailed alongside fellow activists Agnes Chow and Ivan Lam who also pleaded guilty at their last court appearance on November 23.

Chow will serve 10 months in prison while Lam will serve 7 months.

All three – formerly members of the now-disbanded political group Demosisto – had been remanded in custody pending their sentencing.
